question for women...

Recommended Posts

ok so obv I am new to all of this, and I was wondering, what if an OB happens at the same time as your period?? I would imagine that using a tampon woudlnt be the most comfortable thing especially if the OB is bad... but having open sores and a cycle at the same time also doesnt sound pleasing..

ideas/advice?

My first OB came on my period. I have a very severe OB my first time, it was EVERYWHERE. The biggest, most painful lesion was right at the opening of my vagina. I still was able to use tampons, I would just have to move around to adjust, hold things open, etc, in order to get it bearable. Keep in mind, I couldn't even urinate without Screaming, crying, and pounding the walls - so the minor irratation from having a tampon there was pale in comparison.

It was more painful to wear pads, though. I experimented with both. If you don't want to touch down there because of sores, you can get some medical gloves or even stick a plastic ziploc bag over your hand.

If your OB is inside your vaginal canal, this might be more painful to wear a tampon. Luckily, my OB was mostly on the outside.

Most women have OBs on the outside of their vaginal area, around the lips and stuff. Unless you have sores internally (which is rare but not impossible), you should be fine for using tampons. Like bennismama said, you might even find pads to be more annoying.

When I was diagnosed, my doc told me NOT to wear tampons because one of the (millions of unsubstantiated) theories about HSV2 is that it can be spread up into the vaginal canal if you press a tampon/applicator over an open sore.

I could use pads because my outbreaks never migrate beyond my labia minora (area closest to the vagina) and anus.

I guess it would depend on how you break out... Mine spread to the anus on the second OB, and I had never done anything to help it migrate (no thong underwear, no crazy toilet paper antics, no sex toys, no sex at all, etc)

My GP advised me to use tampons in my case. I have symptoms mainly over my inner labia & perineum/anal area. I can't remember ever having any pain or rashes up into the vaginal canal itself. I have often had an OB whilst on my period & because the area is naturally more sensitive & swollen around that time of the month, it can make it more difficult, but I truly think that using a pad would rub & irritate my skin moreso than wearing a tampon. The initial discomfort of inserting a tampon pales in comparison to a pad consistently rubbing on your sensitive flesh all day long.

      It's not clear.  The experiments in which they inactivated 2-4% latent HSV in mice, was definitely in living mice. The research paper is very clear about that.  It appears that in May 2018, they also reported nearly 20-30% inactivation of latent HSV in living mice. It's not clear what the 90% is referring to, whether in living mice or some artificial latency model using mice sells in vitro.  I really hope that it was in living mice.  That would make sense, since the earlier experiments were in living mice.  But in any case, as you mentioned, this research is progressing very well. Let's continue to try to raise money for it.
